My Savage ML2 shoots .458 bullets in the harvester black sabot at 1"
Velocity is 2,100 FPS. So what bonded 300 grainers/.458 Diam. are out there that will expand at impact velocities under 2,00 FPS?

My daughter and I have taken several WT deer with the Nosler .458 300 gr BST loaded up in the muzzleloaders. Never recovered a bullet but always recovered a dead buck.

I would give these a serious look. Speer sells them as "target" bullets, and used to call them "plinkers." But they are actually a tough, Uni-cor bullet. And they are relatively inexpensive, if you can find them.
